Finished merging some envelopes into my album.

note: I know I don't have a U432A, when I realized what was in that space was clearly not U432A, I filled the mount with an albino 429.

I've been re-organizing my International binders. I decided to put the pages in Part I, Part II, Part III, Part IV ... thru Part VIII order, instead of by country. While doing this, I have removed all pages where 0 stamps remain for the country / entity in the individual part (except for Part I which is a full album of empty pages). I documented each country / entity that remains in each part so that I know what is left inside the "part" albums. I am also doing a final pass at removing remaining margin stamps so that all that remains in the albums are stamps in their correct spaces on the page. This also means that all of the stamps in the albums will be unique. One exception to the above is that I took the 11 larger South American countries and put them into their own album.

Started counting unique stamps outside of my Steiner pages. Only 6 countries partially counted and already at 9243 stamps! Laying out classic Saar, Schleswig, and Thailand as I am still trying to complete the classic remount on Steiner. Have to reconstruct the Saar first OFFICIAL STAMPS page because the frames are too small all around. Bought another pack of women's headbands to hold my International albums closed (for stability).

And to edit my previous post, I meant to say the 10 largest countries in South America.

Nicholas, if you want to or need to edit a post, you can do so easily. on everyones post is a series of small pictures. When you are the author of the post it shows three pictures with a small letter. The third one has a pencil in it. Click on that and you can change anything you want to. Easier and better to do it that way since it stays in the post that you want to edit

One cannot edit after 24 hours so looks like he was beyond the 24 hour limit. You would need an admin to fix it.

Yes, I am aware of this. But if you read these posts, this poster is "editing" very often. And it gets confusing. This was just to help him the next time,

Hello
recently I finished a collection of Moroccan stamps from 1956 to 1984,
but unfortunately
I couldn't find a collectible Moroccan album on the market with an affordable price, so I decided to do it myself.
Is that what gave me the idea to share it with the phelatelists so I created a youtube channel from which I will be waiting for your comments.

Mounted classic Saar, Schleswig, and Thailand. Thinking what to do next, I went with laying out what I have for German East Africa, German New Guinea, German South West Africa, and the German States. I printed Steiner pages for these even though some are covered in my German specialty pages. Then I decided to lay out the Germany 1N, 3N, 4N, 5N, 6N, and 8N occupation stamps. For these, I went with the specialy pages for used stamps and will be printing Steiner pages for the unused stamps which includes the Washington and London printings of the 3N group. Next up will be French Offices Abroad for which I also have specialty pages.

Mohamedel,

Your Morroco album is nice, very neatly done with good spacing to set the stamps apart for appreciation. It gives a rich impression. There does seem to be a bit of extra space at the left which might have been used for a few more stamps per page, but that is a minor quibble. Perhaps you did not need the added space because of the number of stamps issued per year.

I find myself wondering what software you used to generate your pages. I have used AlbumEasy for custom albums and for the custom and substitute pages which I frequently add to my regular commercially purchased album for regular United States.

I did notice in the close up of the album page that some of the stamp images inside the box outlining the stamp are not completely covered when you use a clear mount to position the stamp. If there is a setting to shrink the image of the stamp, it will help avoid a slight distraction to the stamp at the bottom perforation. I had to do this with with some of my pages after I noticed that I had no wiggle room when positioning the stamp in its mount into the intended box. In AlbumEasy it was a matter of reducing one number until I got it right and then I have never looked back.

Well done. I think you are right to be pleased with your considerable effort to make these pages. I trust you have found it enjoyable time well spent .
Thank you for posting your video.

- Jonathan

Hello Jonathan

Thank you for your remarks.
for the moment I only use Word and pdf. I searched at the beginning on the net I found a few years I took it as a model
and I continued the other years on word and printed them on PDF, after I printed them all on A3 paper and at a printing house I cut the papers and perforated them to put them in a DAVO album.
soon I will use AlbumEasy for other Album .
Thank you

Decided to put used Germany to 1949 in my Scott specialty pages, so spent some time adding to those and removing unused. Will print a set of Steiner pages for my unused (mostly hinged). It's going to be a nice parallel collection. All other duplicate singles are already stored in a stock book. I have dozens of pairs and blocks of four as well, so I might create some pages for those.
